Disk Defragmenter wont work

Could anyone suggest why, after leaving the Disk Defragmenter running over night for 10 hours, didnt even reach 1%. Is there anything wrong with it? I have never used it before so I would have no idea about it!

Start in safe mode by keep pressing F8 as you start your computer, and run it in safe mode.

Or try disabling all running programs; ctrl, alt & delete and select and click end task on each one EXCEPT explorer and systray (some need doing twice) and then disable your 'quicklaunch' toolbar; right click on empty grey area adjacent to your 'quicklaunch' select toolbars and remove tick from 'quick launch'. Also make sure your screensaver is disabled.

If all else fails, Diskeeper Lite (free download) will do it!
